Amidst the news that Vakula will soon be starting his own Leleka imprint, Shevchenko swiftly serves a third helping of productions from the Ukrainian. This release follows the upward trajectory of Shevchenko to date, as our impressions of Mama Said Glow were surpassed by the quite recent SHEV002. "Dub As Always" is typically unique, beginning like a bastardized East European cousin to Felix Da Housecat's "Kick Drum" before drafting in huge waves of burning synths. Vocals echo around our senses, falling to the depths before rising and shooting in different directions as the track throbs away at your brain. On the flip Vakula indulges in some scratchy, abrasions on "Track 2" which makes for the kind of production those with little studio know how will sit through and wallow in a state of confusion as to how he made it. As ever, it's hard to compare anyone else to what Vakula is doing right now.
